main fora....what does one do??

the Business and Site Help fora are always the ones that seem to be most popular = there are many posts that shouldn't be there but we do need a category for other things and not just be directed to groups...
i have had no success in groups yet i always get great advice here..
any thoughts??

Yes, I think you're beating a dead horse, as they say.

Etsy has made their choices. As I recall, we had to beg
them to keep THESE parts of the Forum.

So, I say, save your breath--or, in this case, your fingers!

LOL! sad but true!!!
I have to agree with Anita on this one.....
We're supposed to go to teams with those "other things" but admin is inconsistent in policing the forum so I'm always confused by what is allowed here and what isn't.

To be fair, if 20 new people come along and commit a forum sin, it looks like Etsy is not policing, but how would that be prevented? I mean they can shut those 20 threads, and then tomorrow there will be 20 more new people doing the same thing. It's not repeat offenders.
That's a good point Caroline, but those threads from the 20 new people remain open even after they've been reported. I think this helps create repeat offenders because they are not told not to do it by admin.
I have found teams tedious, ineffective and generally preaching to the choir. Come on etsy we cannot be compartmentalized with a pretty bow(No matter how organic or up-cycled.Art and artists are a messy prospect!
In the old days I used to come to the main forum page and have a look, they changed it, and now I come to the main forum page and have a look ;-)
Yes, somethingxtraspecial, that is how it works now;)
